fair-winds-and-all-i-see: Happy horse, happy rider. Our London 2012 gold medalist and her amazing horse. I love the story of Charlotte and Valegro. Carl Hester is a champion, too. He took Charlotte under his wing and let her ride his horse to victory. He said he knew Valegro could win a gold medal. He knew Charlotte would be the rider to get it. She has said she owes everything to him. What a great team.
Eric Lamaze & Hickstead! Truly a story of the come back kid and horse!! The Equestrian world turned thier backs on him..He swore he would be back and win gold one day for Canada..Hickstead & Eric were the under dogs...But they prevailed to gether true champions and won GOLD!!! they are my Equestrian Hero's!! RIP Hickstead you will go down in history as one of the Great Horses of all time.
